Alex Trebek, long time host of the TV show “Jeopardy!”, died Nov. 8 at age 80 after a battle with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Mr. Trebek, being a Christian and kindhearted man, often gave credit to his fans that their prayers were giving him better results than his doctors and medicines! The show’s producer, Mike Richards, said “He will forever be an inspiration for his constant desire to learn, his kindness, and for the love of his family.” Millions of viewers saw him the same way; as an inspiration for learning and for faith and strength while fighting cancer. In keeping with that reputation, Mr. Trebek filmed his last episodes just 10 days before his death with a message to his fans about the importance of coming together, being strong and taking care of each. He also said this about his show; “I think what makes Jeopardy special is that, among all the quiz and game shows out there, ours tends to encourage learning.” Using Mr. Trebek as a role model, do you ever think of “learning” when you think of Jesus? We are attentive during Sunday School and listen aptly to our Pastors’ sermons. Couldn’t we keep that learning alive during the weekdays? We could become part of the Covid-19 driven “home schooling wave” that is sweeping over our country. We could take the opportunity dig deeper into our Bibles and have Bible readings or studies with our families, especially the children! 1 Corinthians 6:17 “But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.” Mr.Trebeck’s widow, Jean, said, "Time is too precious to be spent on anything other than kindness." Be Kind. Learn from/ about Jesus - pray to Him, obey Him, obey His commandments, and study the Scriptures - Show gratitude.

First Baptist Farmerville

We welcome you! First Baptist Church, 400 North Main, offers two worship services every

Sunday morning. The 9 AM service is suitable for senior adults and higher-risk attendees, and masks are required throughout this service. At the 11 AM service, a mask is required when entering and exiting the building and while moving around the sanctuary.

Most of us believe and trust the Word of God. Most of us believe that the Lord will return one day. Based on what’s happening in the world, it may be soon. Shouldn’t we be prepared?

Luke 19:11-27 is a parable that Jesus told just before His crucifixion. It was intended for His disciples to understand what was to come and what He expects from us until His return.

Church, we are living in the days leading up to the return of our King. We have been given various responsibilities, and we are expected to fulfill those responsibilities. When the King comes, He will come with great expectations of our lives, and there are great consequences to what He finds.

Although our King is a King of Grace, He is a righteous, judging King as well. Upon His return, judgement comes. There is a time of reckoning, and according to this story, it will be great for some, but destructive for others. We will be accountable for our actions, for by our actions, our hearts are revealed.

There is a tendency to trust someone’s words, but our King looks at the heart. Our actions, our handling of His instructions, are evidence of our faithfulness to God. What are we responsible for?

1) Ourselves, our relationship with the Lord, our knowledge of Him, and our service to Him.

2) Our family, which is a gift of God to each of us.

Husbands, love your wives as Jesusloves the church. Wives, support and follow the example of your husband in the Lord.

Parents, raise up your children in the admonition of the Lord.

3) Love your neighbor as yourself. Make a difference in a positive way.

Let’s take what God has given us, whatever it may be, and do our best to see it grow in 2021.

Come worship, love, serve, and learn with us! Kurt Auger, Pastor; Frank Nihart, Music Pastor.

Visit us at www.fbcfarmerville.com for up-to-date information, or our FBC Farmerville Facebook page, where Bro. Kurt broadcasts “live” every day at noon.

First Baptist Church — Marion

In the 60’s a magazine cover said “God Is Dead.” As the world spins in chaos some may wonder if that is true. At FBC Marion there is manifold evidence that God is alive,

Jesus lives and the Holy Spirit continues to work. Ask Michael Thomas, Dustin Andrews, Shep Towns or Sawyer Towns if Jesus still saves. Three great weeks of baptizing and watching God work in the midst of all Satan is trying to do shouts “God Is Not Dead.” Bro. Bubba preached today from II Samuel 10. David and his people were vastly outnumbered for battle. Surely they must have felt as Christians today do looking at what seemed to be a hopeless situation. They didn’t know whether they would be temporarily defeated or whether God would amazingly deliver them. Listen to what they said in II Samuel 10:12, “Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God; and the Lord do that which seemeth Him good.” Our purpose as Christians is to be courageous and live like warriors in the Army of God and leave the results to Him. Take heart fellow Christians, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”

PRAY FOR EACH OTHER, OUR CHURCH, OUR NATION, AND OUR LEADERS.

Haile Church of Christ

It seems anytime there is a major world event such as the pandemic or social unrest we currently face, much of the evangelical world focuses on Israel. Jacob was the son of Isaac and the grandson of Abraham.

God changed Jacob’s name to Israel, and the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob became the nation of Israel and were God’s chosen people under the Old Covenant. The descendants of Abraham or Israel under the New Covenant are no longer based on their physical lineage. “Not all Israel is Israel; it is no longer children of the flesh who are children of God but children of the promise are regarded as descendants (Romans 9:6-9). The promise to Abraham was that through His Seed all nations will be blessed (Genesis 22:18). The Seed was Christ (Galatians 3:16). Continuing to believe that national Israel remains God’s chosen nation under the New Covenant fails to understand Christ’s work on the cross as well as the basis for being Abraham’s descendants. “Therefore be sure it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham” (Galatians 3:7). Faith, not race, qualifies one to be a descendant of Abraham under the system of grace.

Peter quotes Gods reference to Old Testament Israel and applies it to “the new Israel” or “those called out of darkness” by writing “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession” (1 Peter 2:9). The true descendants of Abraham or “the true circumcision” are those who worship in the Spirit of God and put no confidence in the flesh” (Philippians 3:3).

Abraham’s sons are those who are in Christ, children of God through faith (Galatians 3:26-29), not a particular race or a parcel of land.

Wed. Bible Study, Jan 13th, Bro. Dan’s message was from 1st Peter Chapter 1:16-25; Chapter 2:1-4. (1:23) Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever. What God has said is the only truth; The story of Christ will give us salvation. We go to church because we all want to be there, to do better and to grow in our faith.

Sunday School, Jan. 17th, Bro. Paul taught us from John Chapter 15:24-27; Chapter 16:1- 33. (16:33) These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. We overcome the world by faith; belief in Jesus Christ.

Worship Service, Jan. 17th, Bro. Dan’s message was from 2 Timothy Chapter 3:1-5.

(3:1) This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. These five verses are so fitting for all that is going on in our world today. I encourage everyone to read them. Bro. Dan’s message was very fitting for the world today and why we should NOT be in favor with the world but to stay in God’s favor and to always keep our faith in Him. Sis. Judy played the piano and sang for us this morning. After this morning’s service we were blessed with a baptism. This always fills our hearts with joy!

Sunday Evening, Jan. 17th, Bro. Dan’s message was from Ephesians Chapter 2:4- 9; Chapter 4:1-3. (2:8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (2:9) Not of works, lest any man should boast. Three points to remember: (1) Sit and learn; come and receive, (2) Walk for Jesus, (3) Stand for Jesus. Especially in times like now.

LMBC still has cookbooks available for $10 with 300 recipes. These make wonderful gifts. If you would like to purchase one please call Donna at (318) 548-2699 and I will be glad to get them delivered to you.

During these very difficult times many churches have had to temporarily close. If your church is closed and you need a place to worship please come join us. You will be made very welcome to come and worship with LMBC until such time that you are able to return to your church family.

Liberty Baptist Church - Linville

The Return, September 26th, 2020.

Liberty Missionary Baptist Church – Spearsville

Liberty Church Road, Spearsville

Bro. Bill Styron, Pastor

We had a good SS discussion on fasting, praying, and giving alms.

Brothers Bill and Gus sang “Build My Mansion” and “Going Back”.

We want to express our sympathy and love to the Lockwood and Williams families in loss of Royce. Royce went to be with the Lord on the 12 th after a brief illness. Bro. Bill brought the message from God from John 16:20. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, that ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.” Sometimes we don’t understand how sorrow can turn to joy. God wants us to have exceeding joy. We can have this joy by zeroing in on God, by fasting, praying, and being obedient to God. We need to get alone with God and just talk with Him.

Find a special place to be alone with God, sing songs of praise to Him from the heart, pray, read the Bible, just worship God. Take your trials and tribulations to Him. In God, you will find joy. He told us to be of good cheer. Christ overcame the world. He did it for our sins. We are going to have tribulations, but we don’t have to allow them to worry us. God is still on His throne and that should give us peace. We need to be showing Jesus to others. We need to get in agreement with God. We are joint heirs with Jesus! We should be glorifying God every day. We come to church to worship, but we should be going out to serve. JOY is: Jesus first in every aspect, Others second, You last. We need to make a commitment to God.

It was good to have Joe back after being in hospital. We were blessed having Amanda, Elvin, Benny, Sonja, LeAnn, and Tristin with us. We invite you to come grow in God’s Word and fellowship with us.

My Father’s House

My Father’s House Teach one to be one. Jesus was with the disciples for three years. He was with them 40 days before going to heaven. If you have read Acts 1 and 2 you would know this. The promise of God was given to Jesus and the promise was fulfilled. The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and the preaching began.

Jesus had made it clear that there would be false teachers. Jesus said also, the way is narrow that leads to life and few find it.

T12B1 will make disciples of Jesus, disciples of Jesus get to know God. In Matthew 5 Jesus opened his mouth telling them about the kingdom of heaven. The faithful disciples will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. In Matthew 6, Jesus gave instructions on how to get something from God our father.

The disciples learned from the teacher for God to forgive, one must forgive according to Jesus. Jesus taught the disciples about the eye. He told them about log and specks. He mentioned hypocrites. In verses 6 and 7 Jesus explains the law and the prophets.

Jesus told them about trees and how to recognize them. Have you read his words beware of false prophets, they will come to you in sheep clothing. Don’t forget this. Join Joseph at My Father’s House at 4774 Highway 151 Downsville, La 71234. For more information call or text 318-620-9293.

Associate Pastor: Stephen Murry

News: Brenda Pace

“Father show me where I fit into this plan of yours. How can a man be father to the Son of God? Lord, for all my life I’ve been a simple carpenter. How can I raise a king?”

Matthew 1:18-25 – Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit . . . while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”

Joseph was a loving, just man, which showed in the way he planned to deal with the situation regarding Mary. He was sensitive to her feelings, not wanting to draw attention to her. As instructed by an angel in a dream, Joseph was responsive to the Lord and carried out God’s plan by following through with the marriage. Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son.

And he called His name Jesus. Being self-disciplined, Joseph did not have marital relations with her until after Jesus was born.Do we recognize God’s call on our life?

If we do, do we respond in obedience? God has a plan for each of us; each is as important as another. It is up to us to follow as He leads. The LORD is still in control. Trust in Him!

We would like to wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
